    (Thinking) No, sir! I’m gonna make something of myself. I’m going to night school, and one day, I’m gonna be somebody! Like a… Congressman! Now *that’s* a good idea! I could run for Congress. They’ll see, I *will* be a congressman! I’ll be the most powerful congressman in all Illinois, and I’m gonna clean up that town… [stands tall with a hand over his heart] Congressman Rodney Davis, I like the sound of that.”

    I accomplished more in 1 day at McDonalds than the entier U.S. House of Representatives has acoomplished in hte past 5 years.

    “I started out mopping the floor. But now… now I’m washing lettuce. Soon I’ll be on fries; then the grill. In a year or two, I’ll make assistant manager, and that’s when the big bucks start rolling in.”

    Jules - Royale with cheese. You know why they call it that?

    Rodney - Because they’re commies?

    Jules - Look at the big brain on Rodney!

    47th Ward with the Fast Times references for the win.

  33. - phocion - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:17 am:

    Rich, you should have a “like” icon on your blog a la Facebook. There are some really hilarious comments today. Including yours. Definitely appreciate the “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and OW’s “Back to the Future” references. Good stuff!


  34. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:17 am:

    “I’m so good, I don’t even need to turn the monitor around to see what the orders are.”

  37. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:31 am:

    “When I get off work, I’m gonna meet my buds and cruise our parking lot!”

    (In my kind of small Southern Illinois hometown, the teenagers cruised the McDonald’s parking lot. Seems kind of weird to do if you worked there.)


  38. - Bogey Golfer - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:34 am:

    I thought chicks like a guy in a uniform.

    Rodney McDonald?

    I’m outta here.


  41. - Dirty Red - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:43 am:

    = OW’s “Back to the Future” references. Good stuff! =

    Yeah, OW is killin’ today. Marty McFly AND Jake & Elwood in the same thread. Well played.


  42. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    “Why does she keep saying ‘Kiss my grits!’…”


  43. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:50 am:

    Lots of good ones, glad to be in the discussion.

    “Smile! You’re at Mr. Smiley’s.”

    “Hey. Make sure you can see my marvelous mullet in this picture!”


  45. - Under Further Review - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 9:58 am:

    He’s doing a job that an American does not want to do according to some people. Snark.


  46. - too obvious - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:10 am:

    Doesn’t his dad own some McDonald’s places? That would make this more than the typical minimum wage job.


  47. - Team Sleep - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:11 am:

    “You like my Metallica mustache?!”


  48. - A guy... - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:11 am:

    I’m way ahead of schedule. Once I master the shakes and kick butt and the drive up window, I can run for Congress. “look out, I’m Greased Lightening”.


  49. - Team Sleep - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:12 am:

    Too - what does that matter?! How do you know that Rodney’s dad didn’t pay him minimum wage? My grandpa farmed hundreds of acres before he retired and he paid me LESS than his hired help for the same work and same hours.


  50. - Skeptical - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:14 am:

    Rodney on the economy and jobs: “As I travel around the 13th District, jobs is the number one issue on the minds of mothers and fathers trying to support their families, recent college graduates trying to start their first career, high school kids looking for a part-time job and seniors who need some extra money just to get by.” I always tell them, “Hey, why don’t you drop your application off at McDonald’s. I’ll put a good word in for you with Don.”


  51. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:17 am:

    ===My grandpa farmed hundreds of acres before he retired and he paid me LESS than his hired help===

    Where I grew up, the local family which owned the Dairy Queen did so out of absolute necessity. They had 13 kids to feed and somehow keep occupied.


  52. - flea - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:17 am:

    I got paid minimum wage and look where I am now


  53. - Jeff Trigg - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:17 am:

    “Two all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun.”

    I worked at the McDonalds in Washington, IL back at age 15 when they allowed a lower minimum wage for youngsters to get their feet wet in the real working world. Didn’t make a living at it, but I did get my first car, a $600 1980 Dodge Colt, and insurance.


  54. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:21 am:

    Rodney - What are those?

    Boss - Those are the keys to this establishment. I want you here at 6:15, this place has to be mopped and clean before the breakfast crew arrives….Where you goin’!

    Rodney - To wash my hands I gotta pat and mold!

    Boss - You wash your hands on your own time!


  55. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:37 am:

    Customer: “Say, you look kinda familiar. Aren’t you that kid that spray-painted my dog last week?”

    Rodney: “Uh…that was like, other kids, or something. Huh huh huh huh.”


  56. - Big Debbie - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:43 am:

    A young Rodney Davis was shocked when his dad told him he needed to leave the family business and go work for George Ryan. “Listen to Mr. Ryan, he will teach you everything you need to know to make it in Washington. Respect him like you respect me. But remember, son, no matter how high you climb, and no matter how moderate your district, you will still be working for the family. One day, and this day may never come, but one day, the CEO of McDonald’s may call on you for a favor. If this day comes, you will insist that raising the minimum wage cuts jobs. Always remember that and you will never flip another burger again.”


  57. - Ginhouse Tommy - Friday, Jul 25, 14 @ 10:44 am:

    A guy who works around hot oil, is good with his hands and serves it up hot. What a chick magnet!

    - Ghost -,

    Glad you like it. There is one more Easter Egg out there.

    “Caption?”
